for The Term of
By MARCUS CL.ARICI3
In tlu breathless stillness of n tropical
nfternoon, when tho air was hot ami
heavy, anil the sky hraicn and cloud
Icm, the shadow of the Malabar lay
nolltary on tho surface of the glittering
Tho sun hail Jut pot low enough to
peep beneath an awning ami awaken a
young man, In an undress military mil
form, who was doling on a coll of rwK.
"Hang It!" satd he, rising, with the
weary sigh of a mau who has nothing
to do, "I mmt havo been asleep;" and
then, holding lijr a stay, be turned about
nnd looked down Into the waist of tho
Save for the man at tho wheel and
tho guard at the Quarter rail Inc. he was
nlone on tho deck. On the forecastle,
pome half-doaen soldiers wore playing
at card', or watching the fishing Hues
hanging orer the eat head.
So far the appearance of the vessel
differed In nowise from that of an ordi
nary transport. Hut In the waist a
curious night presented Itself. It was
ns though one had built n cattle pen
there. At tho foot of tho foremast,
nnd at the quarter deck, a strong bar
ricade, loop-holed nnd furnished with
doors for Ingres and egre. ran across
the deck from bulwark to bulwark. Out
side this cuttle pen an armed sentry
Klood on guard; Inside, standing, sitting
or walking monotonously, within range
of tho shining barrel in the arm-chest,
vera some sixty men and boys, dressed
In uniform gray. The men and boys
were prisoner and the cattle pen was
their exercise ground. Their prison was
down the main hatchway, and the bar
ricade, continued down, made Its aide
vail. It was the fag-end of the two hours'
oxercle. graciously permitted each af
ternoon, nnd the prisoners were enjoy
ing themselves. It was not. perhaps, ao
pleasant as under the awning, but that
t-acred shade was only for such great
men at the captain and his officer. Sur
geon Pine. Lieut. Maurice Frere and,
most Important personage of all, Cap
tain. Vkkivs and his wife.
That the convict leaning against the
bulwark would like to bare been abb?
to gel rfcl of his enemy, the sun. for a
moment, was probable enough. Ilia ma
panlna, sitting on the combings of the
main hatch, or crouched in carele
fashion on the shady side of the barri
cade, were laughing and talking, with
merriment hideous to contemplate; but
lie, with cap pulled over his brows, ami
hands thrust Into the pockets of his
coarse gray garments, held aloof from
their dismal Joviality.
The lowbrowed. coarse-featured ruf
fians grouped about the deck cast many
n leer of contempt at the solitary figure,
but their remarks were confined to ges
tures only. There are degrees In crime,
nnd Itufus Dawes, the convicted felon,
who bad but escaped the callows to toil
for all his life in irons, was a manof
mark. He had beeu tried for the rob
hery and nlurder of Lord Itellaiis. Tho
friendless vagabond's lame story of find
ing on the Heath a dying man would
not hare availed him but for the curi
ous fact sworn to by the landlord of the
Spaniards' Inn. that the murdered no
bleman had shaken his head when asked
if the prisoner was his aasln. The
-vagabond was acquitted of the murder,
hut condemned to death for the rob
Iiery, and London, which took tome In
terest In the trial, considered him for
tunate when his sentence waa commuted
to transportation for life.
The young man on the deck caught
night of the tall figure leaning against
the bulwarks, and It gave him an excuse
to break the monotony of faU employ
ment. "Here, you!" be called out, "get out
of the gangway!"
Itufus Dawes waa net In tho gang
way was. In faet, a good two feet from
It but at the sound of Lieut. Freda's
voire he started, and Meat obediently
toward the hatchway.
"I'll make some of you fellows smart,
if you don't hare a care," went on the
nngry Frere.. "Insolent blackguards!"
And then the noise of the sentry, on
the quarter deck below Mm, grounding
arms, turned the current of his thoughts.
A thin, tall, soldier-like man, with a
cold blue eye, and prim features, came
out of tho cuddy below, handing out a
fair-haired, affected, mincing lady of
middle ago. Captain Vlekers, of Mr.
1'rero's regiment, ordered for service In
Van DIemen's Land, was bringing hi
lady en deck to get an appetite for din
ner. Mrs. Vlekers was forty-two, and had
beeu a garrison belle for eleven weary
years before aha married prim John
.Vickera. The marriage was not a happy
one. Vickera found his wife exjrava
Kant, Tain, and anapplaa. and she found
him harsh, disenchanted, and common
place. A daughter, born two years af
ter their marriage, was the only link
that bound the Ill-assorted pair. Vlekers
idolized little Sylvia, and upon the rec
ommendation of a long sea voyage for his
falling health, he insisted upon bringing
the child with him. Mrs. Vlekers fol
lowed her husband with the best grace
die could muster. When fairly out to
(tea she employed the intervals between
Molding her daughter ami her maid, in
fascinating the boorish young lleuteuant,
Fascination was an Integral portion of
Julia Vlekers' nature; admiration was
nil she lived for; and even In a convict
ship, with her husband at her elbow, she
must flirt, or perish of mental liiani
tlou. There was no harm In tho crea
ture. She was simply a vain, middle
nged woman, and Frere took her atten
tions for what they were worth. Run
ning down the ladder, cap lu hand, he
offered his assistance.
"Thank you, Mr. Krere. Thoso hor
rlblo ladders. , I really he, he! quite
tremble at them. Ilotl Yos, dear me,
most oppressive, John, the camp stool.
Vrny, Mr. Frcre oh, thauk you! Syl
via) Sylvia! John, hate you my smell
Inr salte? Still a calm, I aupposel
U'hese dreadful calms!"
Vlekers, with a bow to Frere, saw his
Wife up the ladder, and then turned
for hfa daughter. She was a delicate
looking child of sr years old, wth blue

eyes and bright hair. I.lttlo Miss Syl
via was prhllcgcd to go anywhere and
do anything, nnd even conviction shut
Its foul- mouth In her presence. Unti
tling to her father's side, the child chat
tered with nil the volubility of flattered
self-esteem. She ran hither and thither,
asked question. Invented answers,
laughed, sung, gamboled, peered Into the
compass case, felt in tho pockets of the
mau at the helm, (tut her tiny hand
Into the big palm of tho o ill cor of tho
watch, even ran down to the quarter
deck and pulled tho coat tails of the
sentry on duty.
At last, tired of running about, she
took a little striped leather I II from
the bosom of her frock, and. calling to
her father, threw It up to him. lie
returned It. and shouting with laugh
ter, clapping her hands between each
throw, the child kept up the game.
In the midst of this mirth the ottlcer
of the watch. glanclHg round the fast
crimsoning horlson, paused abruptly,
and. shading hi eye with his hand,
looked out intently to the westward.
Frere. who found Mr. Vb-ker's conver
sation a tittle tiresome, and had been
glancing from time to time at the com
panion, ns though In expectation of
some one appearing, noticed the nctkm.
"What i It. Mr. Itest?"
"I don't know exactly. It wok to me
like a cloud of smoke." And taking the
glass, ho swept the horlion.
"Let me see," said Frere, and he
On the extreme horizon, Just to the
left of the sinking sun, rested a tiny
black cloud. The gold ami crimson,
splashed all nbout the sky. had over
flowed around It, and rendered a clear
view almost Impossible.
"I can't quite make It out," says
Frere, handing back tW telescope. "We
can see as ihwii as the sun goes dawn

looked through it long and carefully.
Then the mlaten top was appealed to,
and declared that he could see nothing;
and at last the sun went down with a
Jerk, as though It had slipped through a
slit In the sea, ami the black spot, swal
lowed up In the gathering base, was
seen no more.
As the sun sank, the relief guard came
up the after hatchway, and the relieved
guard prepared 'to superintend the de
scent of the convicts. At this moment
Sylvia mled her ball, which, taking
advantage of a sudden lurch of the ves
sel, hopped over the barricade, nnd roll
ed to the fret of Itufus Dawes.
The bright spot of color rolling across
the white deck caught his eye; stoop
ing mechanically, he picked up the bait
anil stepped forward to return It. The
door of the barricade was open, and the
sentry did not notice the prisoner pass
through It. In another Instant he was
on the sacred quarter deck
Heated with the game, her cheeks
aglow, her eyes sparkling, her gulden
hair afloat, Sylvia bad turned to leap
afttr her plaything, but even as she
turned, from under the shadow of -the
cuddy glided a round white arm; ami a
shapely hand caught the child by the
sash and drew her back. The next mo
ment the young man In gray had placed
the toy In her hand.
Maurice Frere, descending the lad
der, had not witness! this little Inci
dent; on reaching the deck, be saw only
the unexplained presence of the aenvict
"Thank you," said a voice, as Itufus
Dawea stooped Iwfore the pint ting Syl
via. Tho convict raised hi eye ami saw
a young girl of eighteen or nineteen
years of age, tall anil well developed,
who, dressed in a loose-sleeved robe of
some white material, was standing in
the doorway. She had black hair, colled
around a narrow ami flat head, n small
foot, white skin, well-shaped hands, end
large, brown eyes; and as she smiled at

Mr. Maurice Frere.
"What do you here'" asked that gen
tleman. "You lazy, skulking hound,
what brings you here? If I catch you
putting your foot on the quarter deck
again I'll give you a week In Irons."
Itufus Dawes, pale with rage and
mortification, opened his mouth to Jus

die on his lips. What was tho ut1

with an easy gesture, but she drew It
away, with a flash of her black eyes,
